Going by your statement let me ask you something. Does the fact that you are exercising your first amendment right to free speech on this forum make
you an idiot? You see that's the problem with people such as yourself, you want to blame/punish an innocent person that's complying with the law for
the actions of some wackjob that killed a bunch of people.
As far asyour comment about "given the recent events", well ID say that given recent events the man was justified in his carrying of his firearm for
protection. I suppose that you figure he should go to the movie and if something happens then let the cops protect him. Well where were the cops when
the wackjob started shooting in Aurora? Why didn't they rush in and instantly stop the shooter and protect everybody? Ill tell you why, because it is
not the duty of police to protect you, that is your own personal responsibility to yourself. It is the duty of police to investigate crimes after they
happen, unless its revenue generating crimes such as traffic violations.
I carry every where I go unless its a prohibited area, so I guess I'm a stupid idiot for realizing that if an armed assailant pulls a gun o knife on
me me cops won't be there to stop him, it will be up to me to protect myself and let the police sort out the details. I live hy the motto that I'd
rather have a gun in my hand than a cop on the phone because that way I know I'm safe.
I guess that's just the thinking of stupid idiots though.......
